  • We chose a very traditional name mainly because it was the only name we could agree on.

  • My husband chose both. Both traditional

  • We didnt plan on whether they were going to be different, but it workee out that way, our daughters names are, Makyra, Harper, Peyton, and our 4th was a boy which is Thomas, we were always prepared for the boys name due to bringing it down from generations before, i grew up with a different name, and alot of our childrens friends have unique names too, so its even better that they dont feel left out from personalised items in the shops haha

  • We didn’t got traditional or unique. We chose 2 boy names and 2 girl names when I first fell pregnant, just names we both liked. We had a boy first and then a girl, so all our favourite names were used

  • We went with 2 very different, and uncommon names. There is definitely no one else at their school with those names. I think it is nice to have some unique names.

  • We have an Isaac. Doesn’t get much more traditional than that.

  • We went traditional. You just have to be comfortable with whatever you choose.

  • My first was traditional but my second was definitely original no one else will have his name

  • Traditional for my first – Patrick (now 17) It’s his Dad and Grandad’s middle name and I loved it so it fit well. I notice there are lots of Patrick’s and Paddy’s being born now – I wonder if Offspring has anything to do with that? :)

    Lauren for my daughter (16) as it wasn’t common back then and Ioved it.

    Carter – more modern – for our third (5)

  • We went traditional, but I think it’s personal so whatever you choose would be great.

  • I chose an original for my first born Andreanna and my father inlaws name for for my son Theodore.

  • We chose traditional names Jack and Audrey and our middle child is Miles… which is not so traditional

  • All traditional normal names. Theyre orginal as a person and dont need an unusual name having to always correct peoples pronunciation.

  • I choose two different names. India for my eldest girl (which is pretty original, although there’s now a few Indianna’s around!) My other daughter is Sofia which is a pretty common name. My best friend just had a baby girl called Autumn!

  • My kids have original names, only one name, no middle names.
